This Hilarious Take On Indian Sex Education

"The health ministry of India recently suggested that sex education be banned in the country. We look at India's attitude towards sex through a "government approved" sex education lecture."

funny.

and sad.

That was funny.. Unfortunately cant say the same about the health minister (or for that matter the Goa minister as well).. I hope somebody tells them that Indian Culture is about knowledge and empowerment as much for politeness and warmth!! Don't believe that 'luv' is being promoted instead of condoms.. I wonder which of the companies rubbed him the wrong way!!

Sex education in schools should be banned, Union health minister Harsh Vardhan says


".....health minister Harsh Vardhan has generated another controversy - this time by stating in his website that sex-education in schools should be banned.

In his "vision" document for Delhi schools, Vardhan, himself a doctor, has said, "So-called 'sex education' (should) to be banned." His website - drharshvardhan.com - also states the need to integrate value education with course content and put strong emphasis on exposing students to India's cultural relations."

if people are so uptight about sex ed, why don't they just change the name to "health science" or some such thing? like some Christians here don't want yoga taught to their kids in public school so they change to name to "stretching" and never utter the horrible word "yoga."

DUH.

What do you expect of this government? The petite bourgeoisie are calling the shots now. Sex education is for the babalog. They can learn all about it in their posh schools.

Can anyone really be surprised at this? You had to see stuff like this coming if the BJP took power.

I don't think it is fair to blame the BJP. People were saying this stuff before too.

I dont blame BJP.. But I do think that the health minister can stop making a fool of himself by saying less and doing the right things rather than get stuck in the mundane..

We've had this kind of thing before when the BJP was last in power: http://www.outlookindia.com/article/...ndemned/220387

That time I put it down to the fact that Sushma Swaraj was rubbing a large quantitiy of powdered Mercuric Sulphide* onto her parting every morning. This was bound to lead to irreversible brain damage.

It is perfectly fair to vilify the BJP, specifically, Dr. Harshvardhan for their (his) regressive views just as it would be fair to do the same of the Congress or any other party when they make stupid decisions or say preposterous things.

No political party is above reproach. Least of all the BJP.

If its anything like the sex education I had in school you'd only watch a video and get free sanitary products anyway. Not much use at all.

my mother handed me a medical book and said "read."



I recall the sex talk in a phys. ed. class in high school, woman teacher. pretty cut and dried, no big deal. actually in high school it's too late, but whatever.

like I said, if people are uptight about it (and the comments after that TOI article are mind boggling) switch "sex education" to "health science" or "anatomy" or "health and wellness."

jeez.

Actually I remember in our high school some nurses from the local sexual health centre came and taught us all how to put condoms on to stands. This was aged 16. Bit too late considering one girl was already pregnant by then.

At our school, the eighth graders (about age 13) are taught "sex respect". I can always tell when they start the class, because they come into my class saying things like, "Pet your dog, not your date."

Somebody probably told her to put the condom on a stand!
